It cannot be denied: brick and mortar retailers have seen several tough and unexpected setbacks recently. Due to quarantine measures and social isolation, many shops remain closed, which also changes shopping habits dramatically.
But tough times are often the source of great ingenuity. At Shopify, we believe that retail is ready to adapt to the recent crisis and come back stronger than ever. Trends that benefit businesses and customers, such as: Omnichannel retailing, for example, will become the new standard in months, not years. Now is a time of resilience and optimism.
This is exactly why we’re introducing the brand-new Shopify POS. We have completely redesigned our POS system solution to help retailers like you increase sales and restart or reopen stores in the current retail environment. We know that the financial pressure has increased significantly recently. For this reason, we are offering our new cash register completely free of charge until October 31, 2020.
Local pickup options, where customers can shop online and pick up their order either in-store or even completely contactless, provide a safe and convenient way to continue selling from your retail location. With the brand-new Shopify POS, you can offer “contactless pickup” so customers can receive their order from a safe distance.
Picking up on site also has other advantages. In this way, customers can save money on shipping costs at a time when their budgets are getting tight and get their desired products faster. Plus, a local pickup can boost sales: In March alone, Shopify merchants saw a 10x increase in sales over a two-week period when they started offering local delivery or in-store pickup of online orders.
Understanding how your business is doing makes it easier to stay agile and make informed decisions. Shopify POS provides a complete overview of your daily sales, average order value, and average number of items per order in each store.
Get an overview of your top performing products and product types, as well as which of your employees has the best sales records. You can access all of this data wherever you are using the Shopify POS app .
Promoting your best-selling products is essential to the economic health of your business. Now you can quickly determine which items should have priority when selling so you can quickly get your inventory down and avoid cash flow bottlenecks. In addition, you could offer products with sluggish sales as a bundle or discount them so that you don’t have to bear unnecessary storage costs.
Every retail store is unique, which is why your POS system must also be adaptable to your specific needs. Shopify POS is built for flexibility: our customizable smart grid allows you to highlight the apps, discounts, and workflows your employees use most, right on the home screen. The tiles in the smart grid automatically adapt to what is happening in the shopping cart in order to make the checkout process as quick and easy as possible.
We are also ready to grow with you. As your business evolves, you can expand the functionality of Shopify POS with a number of useful apps – from in-store appointment booking to walk-in analysis to customer care. Here you can see all of our partner apps .
Quickly find products, customers and orders from your online shop and across all your branches – with our omnichannel search that highlights only the most relevant results. Filtered results are displayed by category so you can instantly switch to the items you want.
We’ve also made the tapping areas large and easy to use. This means your employees have to spend less time worrying about mistakes or scrolling through menus, and more time serving customers.
New employee roles and permissions give you detailed control over which information and workflows are available to the individual members of your team. Give your employees all the tools they need and at the same time give them the right level of access to ensure comprehensive security.
This is especially useful for retailers with multiple locations and growing staff who need to take additional precautions to protect their financial and customer information.
Nobody wants to lose a sale due to out of stock. With the new function “Shipping to the customer”, such shortages are a thing of the past: Search and sell products from all your other branches or warehouses and send them directly to your customers’ doorsteps. The shipping rates are calculated automatically to make the checkout quick and easy.
The brand new POS Systems creates extensive customer profiles that include both online and in-store transactions. This means that you can address all contacts made in the branches with relevant reminders and marketing campaigns. These include special discount offers or new product announcements, which can encourage repeat purchases.
In addition, the sales force can offer each customer a highly personalized shopping experience – with quick access to notes, tags, lifetime expenses and previous orders placed in your online shop and in one of your stores.
